Rumfish y Vino

Article by Dawn MichelWalton

If you’re searching for a unique dining option while in Placencia, Belize, there’s no need to look any further than Rumfish y vino, a self-described “gastro-pub” in the heart of this small fishing village. Perched on the upper level of a lovely colonial-style building, at first glance it may appear to be a simple café behind a quaint façade.

Third Annual SPSC Regatta 2013

The last weekend in May was exciting times in Placencia. We had the First Annual Placencia Sailing Club Regatta! It was held just off the beach at Tipsy Tuna Bar. Bob and I wandered down to see what was happening.

Well, to start things off, we had this awesome ring around the sun, was it an omen? You bet it was. It was an omen that it was going to be an absolutely fantastic day!

On the Sailing Club’s face book page it says, “The Placencia Sailing Club is located in Belize. We are the 4th sailing club in the country. We teach children how to sail in optimist boats and race in regattas.” Personally, I think is it far more than that, as this regatta brought together the village as a whole. Everyone was out there having a great time, helping out where they could and having lots of fun doing it.

Yoga Flow in Placencia

“Breathe, Sharyn, breathe.” Yes, I am still breathing. I am taking up yoga and my first question is “Am I nuts?” The answer is possibly. I'm not
sure my body or anyone's body was meant to twisted like that. But yoga is this month’s assignment and I am going to give it a good try. Do my best. Am I nuts?
